ADAS – Advanced driver assistance systems – all-terrain vehicle.
Autonomous vehicles have to sense their environment to match their intentions with the real world.
Radars, lidars and cameras are currently the most attractive perception sensors.
The hardware costs and software efforts of this functionality are a signiﬁcant component of the cost of an autonomous vehicle.
Perception challenges and solutions:
While harsh weather and dirt form one set of challenges; it is far more challenging to categorise what the detected object is, especially if it has to be done quickly and reliably. In the latter case it is often necessary to use at least two different sensing technologies.
Instead of investing in higher quality sensors, sensor data enhancement and sensor data fusion are algorithmic means to achieve better recognition accuracy and reliability in varying conditions.
The Off-road all-terrain vehicle:
A vehicle modified for automated driving, by installing electric actuators for control of throttle, steering wheel and brake.
